A malfunctioning Toshiba television set apparently sent out a 121.5Mhz broadcast, a frequency used for international distress signals, and was picked up by a satellite which prompted a hunt by authorities which ended with search and rescue teams showing up at the residence of a very shocked 20-year old college student. Personally I think this was a cry for help from the TV because the guy was watching "Fear Factor."
